Tire Bands required to be removed at tech. May be placed back on after successful tech

10 Second (Heat) Rule: Once a racers competitor begins staging process, opposing racer has 10 seconds to match that racer on the starting line

BREAKAGE ON THE LINE / STUCK ON LINE:
If you get stuck or break on the line, do not touch your vehicle until you see the full run from your opponent. You must at least receive a reaction time to be eligible to advance in the event of the above mentioned. If you do not receive a reaction time, that's considered first is worst and your opponent wins regardless of what his / her vehicle does down track

If you get stuck or break after receiving a reaction time and your opponent causes any infraction, you WIN... as long as you do not touch the vehicle before your opponent causes any infraction

If both vehicles get stuck or break after the the tree has dropped and both receive no reaction time, the race will be re-run
